So Jack Richiardi & Jennifer Bellfield finished their "confidence building" week at LO2S with speeches in front of over 150 people!
Liftoff's Job well done I'd say๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘
Great speeches by them, the volunteers and past LO2S candidates, including Craigie's own Jacob Dudgeon. You've obviously worked wonders for all these young people and Jack and all his friends (existing& brand new) have had an absolute blast.
Well done and Thank You to you all ๐Ÿ˜
